Soft Light - Thematic Photography

I did not have to look far for my 'soft light' interpretations but again soft light was not in my mind when these were taken.

Christmas Hall
Not decked 'with boughs of holly' but softly lit instead.

It was a stained glass window that interested me but what appeared was not intended, Perhaps there was too much Christmas spirit about.

Shorthorn window - Kirklevington Church
I can almost tell the time from my third and final shot.

We'll gather lilacs in the spring again.
Actually this was shot in our garden in early May and from the angle of the sun it must have been early afternoon.

For soft light highlights please flit across to Carmi's thematic-photographic-232.

Bob, these are all perfect photos of soft light- melting away the darkness! A few years ago I decorated a tree in my living room with colored lights, and often that's the only light I will put on in there!

Too many bright over-lit Christmas displays these days, I love your subtle lighting at the door.

I love all those shots, but your hall, and the stained glass window are my favourites. All great shots!

I love how you see the world, Bob. There's something amazing about stained glass. When I was a kid, my best friend's dad was an artist - incredibly gifted - and I'd often go over while he was working on something. The stained glass projects were the most fun, and his house was such a treat to walk through because his dad's work colored every visible surface.

Thanks for the vibrant reminder.
